“The Emerson Health team were the most efficient, reliable, engaged and professional consultancy I have ever dealt with. My team particularly enjoyed the high level of engagement; they demonstrated competence, experience and corporate knowledge that allowed the rapid assimilation of information and integration of findings into operational function. We have a useful report with appropriate and real world recommendations and steps for implementation. I highly recommend Emerson Health”
Clinical Director, Surgical and Perioperative Services
"When Perinatal Child and Youth were exploring options to assist with the review of the policy, Emerson Health were recommended and subsequently selected based on their relevant experience, adherence to timeframes, quality of work and demonstrated understanding of the requirements, and I can honestly say that they have excelled in all areas.
In addition to this Ed and the team have been an absolute pleasure to work with balancing a calm and reassuring approach especially at times of frustration; with quality of work; a wonderful way of engaging respectfully and genuinely with a wide range of stakeholders; and a healthy dose of humour along the way.
Perinatal Child and Youth would certainly recommend Emerson Health to any organisation who truly care about making a difference to the people who work for them and the clients they serve."
Senior Nurse Advisor
"It was a pleasure to work with the team from Emerson Health. Throughout their engagement with us we found them to be knowledgeable and flexible in their approach. Their expertise in analysis and stakeholder engagement, as well as their regular status updates and communication, made us feel assured throughout the project. They delivered us a comprehensive report that was actionable and well reasoned which provided us the confidence to make decisions for our services moving forward"
Director of Support Services
“It was a pleasure to work with the team at Emerson Health. The team progressed a complex brief, achieving project outcomes through a tailored approach that was intuitive and solutions focussed. The co-design workshop was highly effective and engaging for stakeholders. I would recommend Emerson Health in the future.”
Director Strategy and Projects
"We developed a great partnership with Emerson Health. They provided insight, expertise and outstanding communication during the project. Their deliverable addressed our needs and focused on practical strategies and solutions. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and it was a pleasure to work with the team at Emerson."
“Emerson Health’s approach and facilitation of this project was thorough and well researched. Attendees appreciated the research that had been undertaken to ensure the content was targeted to both state and regional agendas, which ensured that Emerson Health’s delivery was not only engaging but encouraged open dialogue and active participation.”
Senior Project Officer
"Emerson Health worked closely with our staff across the North and North West of the Tasmanian Health Service. Their tailored approach enabled the opportunity for our staff to voice their challenges and they appreciated the chance to codesign the future state of their policy management structure. The report provided a series of actionable recommendations and a
high-level implementation plan which aligned with the direction of the newly established statewide framework."
Director of Improvement, Quality & Patient Safety Service
"Working with the Emerson Health team is always a delight. They are professional, friendly and thorough. I knew that I would get a comprehensive, yet practical, report from them. Something that we can easily build into our strategy and implement to grow the Allied Health practice in a way that works for us. Emerson Health worked closely with individuals across the FSPH – providing them with opportunities to give frank and fearless feedback about the challenges they were facing, opportunities for growth and issues that were causing irritation. As always, the report was of high quality, accessible and implementable. I will certainly call on Alicia and the Emerson Health team again and look forward to them being a part of the growth of the Friendlies in Bundaberg."
Chief Executive Officer
“Ed, Eliza and the rest of the Emerson Health Team worked collaboratively with our NSW Health project team to deliver the Genomics Workforce Training package within agreed deadlines. The Emerson team were open, proactive and responsive to feedback provided by the project team and expert advisory group. Tight deadlines were successfully managed, and a diverse group of stakeholders flexibly navigated resulting in the delivery of a fit for purpose co-produced training package.”
